Reviewer: Eliezer Pennywhistler - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - November 25, 2016
Subject: Hit and a miss.
1) This is about the greatest, most moving, most meaningful spoken-word album in history.

2) The sound is rather thin.

3) I do not understand why there is a very short silence between cut 1 and 2. It pulls your head out of the continuity ... which was carefully designed in the original.

4. The original liner notes would have been useful, as they are comprehensive and graceful. I have no idea how one would post it here.
